Helping mob understand climate change

19th Feb 2019

Local environmental group is helping educate community mob about climate change in Central Australia.

The Arid Lands Environment Centre in Alice Springs has adapted an animated video originally developed by Live and Learn Environmental Education, 3 Hands Productions and the North Australia Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance. 

In the video animated bats explain topics such as how green house gases cause temperatures to rise. 

The video has been adapted to Arrernte and Warlpiri, but the Arid Lands Environment Centre says they would like to have it translated to more Indigenous languages in the Northern Territory.

CAAMA Radio Spoke with the CEO of the Arid Lands Environment Centre Jimmy Cocking about the video.
